Our Birch article a couple of issues back was extraordinarily successful and we had so many entries that we reached a few download limits for our PDF! We hope to repeat the successes of the last time with our next tree article, this time on the Mountain Ash.
The Mountain Ash, also known as the Rowan in the UK, is one of our most colourful trees which at its peak can show intense reds, oranges, yellows and greens all at the same time as well as that silvery grey trunk. And that peak is about now in the UK and what a crop of berries they have this year! What we want you to do is submit your pictures of Rowan trees, whether they are UK based or not, and this time we’ll be picking a range of pictures that show the diversity of the tree and its habitats. So don’t just think of a ‘portrait’ of a Rowan but also features that show details of its leaves or berries or trees that are growing in interesting places.
To get you going, here's s photo of a few Rowan around a tumbledown cottage in Ariundle Woods, Ardnamurchan from a trip to Scotland, Charlotte and I made three years ago when we had a wonderful season for berries.
The article will be published in issue 126 and the deadline for submissions is 6th of November, midnight.
